November 7th, 2012 Forecast

The incoming coastal storm will throw clouds over the region through the night, with precipitation moving in during the afternoon across the region.   A cloudy, chilled night is in store later tonight as lows drop to near or just above freezing across the Delaware Valley -- with the coldest readings to our north over the Lehigh Valley where some upper 20's can't be ruled out as skies may stay clear a bit later.

Wednesday is when the coastal approaches and throws precipitation over the region during the afternoon hours.  As of now, rain pushes in from the south but the potential for snow does exist if precipitation is heavy enough as it moves northward.  The best chances of precipitation will be to the city's east over New Jersey and Delaware but precipitation...rain and snow...will be likely into the city as well. The possibility for accumulating snow does exist and the region could see upwards of two to four inches in places where it does indeed snow.

We'll have more information coming up this evening on what the models are showing.  Rain and/or snow will continue into the evening hours.   Winds increase to between 15 and 25 miles per hour at the Shore with higher gusts...the potential could be for 40 mph gusts if not higher in parts of the region.  Highs tomorrow, before precipitation moves in, look to be in the lower 40's in the city.

The good news, after the storm pulls away, is that the weather will gradually improve.  Friday will still feature cool weather with highs only in the lower 50's but high temperatures will likely bounce into the 60's this weekend as high pressure pushes off the coast and a fair weather pattern takes over until Monday...perhaps Tuesday.
